We were advised to visit this spot above a cliff east of Las Galeras town. We visited on an eventful day with a somewhat angry sky and the crashing waves, spray plumes and scudding clouds made for a dramatic setting above the water. A blowhole nearby provided additional sound score to the scene. We had a nice table and great... More

Beautiful view, decent food. More expensive than any restuarant in town but the view is worth the trip.

This is a must see. If you go during the day be sure to see the blow hole there but the best time is sunset.

This place is a must while visiting the Las Galeras area - take a cab - the road is awful, but worth it! Fantastic view from high on the cliff and we even saw whales off shore while we were there. Mojitos are fantastic! And the snoring goat on the porch still has us laughing!

I have never been to a restaurant with a more amazing location or view. The restaurant is literally on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean in an area where folks dive off the cliffs below you. Late afternoon before sunset is beautiful, the sun is shimmering on the water and the sky is gorgeous. The wait staff was... More

Once you have made the hike or driven up from las galeras to this spot (not so easy either way) you will be rewarded by an amazing view over the bay - it is really magical at sunset out on the terrace sipping a mojito. The magic stops at the cocktail. Don't have dinner here. The food is iffy and... More

On our last night in the DR we decided to treat ourselves. We had heard about this place for the sunset views and great food and it did not disappoint. The views are amazing. We had a Iberico ham appetizer which was perfect. Then we had seafood paella. The seafood was fresh and the spice was spot on. They have... More

This place have an amazing view and is a wonderful place to chill out. Very romantic at sunset and after that. Good foot and drinks (nothing special) but good... The view make it worth the travel...

The location of the restaurant is marvelous. The view is stunning, the restaurant is lovely decorated. However, do not visit this restaurant for the food! It's very very overpriced, one of the most expensive places in the area. It's just not worth the money. We had the paella, was so so, a little too salty for my taste.

Some people told us this place was overrated. We didn't think so. Yes, the view is unbeatable, but the food and drinks and ambiance were fantastic as well. Not cheap for the DR, but worth every penny.
